Case Report: Cytomegalovirus Encephalitis in an HIV-Seropositive Person

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is common in persons with HIV/AIDS. It can affect the eye, lung, liver, GI tract, and nervous system. It is also a common cause of blindness in persons infected with HIV. We report a case of CMV encephalitis in a person in whom AIDS was recently diagnosed who did not have CMV retinitis on ophthalmological examination.
